Zeta Magnussoft has just announced that they are delaying the release of ZETA 1.5 Professional from 10 to 15 days in order to add a port of the AbiWord open source word processor, a native PCL6 printer driver and a Radeon x-series video driver. The addition of AbiWord is seen as a move to eventually replace the word processor component of GoBe Productive, a third party lightweight office suite currently bundled with ZETA that is no longer in development. Since AbiWord is released under the GPL, the port is expected to eventually benefit Haiku as well.

Helpful, but not a replacement

AbiWord is quite a good tool, the latest versions are highly compatible with MS-Office, supports ODF exports (if the plug-in is bundled). Personally I prefer to use it over OpenOffice Writer for many reasons.

But it is not a sheet manager, neither it is a presentation tool just to come up with the most important issues why it can not be a replacement of Gobe Prouctive or (the dropped) OpenOffice.
